How It starts

This is how it starts: Lofting the entire boat on a lofting table. I used Tyvek  House Wrap for paper. Its strong and rolls up nice. Rather than use pieces this was one big pattern of the boat. Lofting is the actual transfer of the dimension of a boat to make actual patterns of the keel and frames from the offsets found on the plans of the boat. Shows the chine ,sheer and raised sheer as well as the rabbet.This boat is 44' long with a 13'8" beam. Draft will be about 6' and it's heavy.
